American Artist presents Dignity Images

Museum of the African Diaspora

Curated by Larry Ossei-Mensah and Emily Kuhlmann. Social media has enabled a level of performativity that impacts how individuals capture their experiences, and present their lives to the world. While the digital platforms on which we post, capture, and promote our images champions the supposed democratization of one's image, social media also involves a high level of surveillance, subsequently prioritizing the capitalistic objectives of corporations. Enter the Dignity Image. A term coined by American Artist, a dignity image is a personal image that is deliberately withheld from social media circulation.
